RCA truflat tv locked and is on standby mode. I have a universal remote but the remote will not work if the tv is on standby I need to find out how to unlock the tv with out the remote so I could turn it...

Okay, do this.

On the top of the t.v. itself, hold down the Volume+ (up) and the Menu button down at the same time. This will turn off the "power lock." This is also how you turn on the "power lock." (Though I can't think of a reason anyone would ever want to do this.)

Also the problem ca be from factory defect in the if and video section of the tv only the manufacturer could remedy that.take it to a tech so that the video board and the IF board be replaced

Hope it helps...Thanks ....feel free to contact me back ....Ok ?..

Push button once wait a few seconds for a picture to appear, if not then push the button again, continue until you have selected the input that provides a picture. Right now you are in the Front inputs you should look for Video 1 or 2.
